Fodder for the "If you don't vote for Obama, you're a racist," crowd.

BUT, note this: "Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, too, but the survey found they weren't voting against Obama because of his race. Most Republicans wouldn't vote for any Democrat for president—white, black or brown."

This should make white folks feel comfortable voting for McCain on race alone. After all 98% of Blacks are voting for Obama because he’s black.

Well we all know about them white guys - especially if they’re from the south.

It’s not a racial slur cause our media says it’s not. :D

That is key and is what the MSM keeps glossing over. They call Republicans the party of rednecks, but somehow refuse to acknowledge the bigotry within their own party.

New Dem motto: We have met the racists, and they is us!

Exactly! Plus, I’m not voting against Obama because he’s black. I have no problem with a black person being President. I am voting against Obama because he is a pro-abortion/infanticide socialist.

Just setting everyone up so guilt can be slung in the increasing likelihood that he loses due to his unsuitability, not his race. Here, pick a card:

How many of these articles are they going to write? Okay, we’ve got it. You don’t vote for The One and you’re a racist. I’m willing to live with that.

Of course the fact that he is a marxist has little to do with how the election will turn out.

Correction: Racial misgivings of DEMOCRATIC whites an Obama issue. Øbama losing 17-19% of his base is the elephant in the room this election.

Have you heard any hand-wringing from the MSM about this? What would the coverage be if McCain was losing 17-19% of HIS base??

When McCain’s ad blasted Obama for being friendly with Raines, the media cried racism. When the 527 ad come out blasting Obama for having ties to Rev. Wright and Bill Ayes, the press will be there crying racism.

And of course the obligatory, non-biased AP suggestion that the evil McCain is an “ally” of the evil Bush. The “if the Messiah loses it’s because whites are racist scum” meme will gather momentum throughout the rest of the election cycle. Everyone knows the “flyover crowd” is far too stupid to judge Obama on his merits.

Funny thing about this “poll.”

It’s Democrats being labeled racist, not Republicans.

I see it as gult tripping Whites into voting for a very flawed candidate.

Think they’ll realize they should have stuck with Hillary?

Funny how such articles only cast whitey as being racist. Other ethnic groups, such as those of Hispanic, Indian, or east Asian descent, could never possibly be racist, right?

I am against Obama because of what he stands for, nothing to do with the color of his skin. I am against Obama because he is pro abortion/pro choice (same thing btw) and a variety of other things such as character, character that he does not have. I am against Obama because he has hoped for failure in Iraq etc and has hoped the economy would go bad etc. Nothing to do with the color of his skin.

I can think of many black men and women that would be very good Presidents. Off the top of my head,how about Joe Watkins or Michael Steele.

While the Democrat party platform is what it is, it would not matter who ran .

many calling them "lazy," "violent" or responsible for their own troubles.

So, who is responsible for their troubles?

The poll sought to measure latent prejudices among whites by asking about factors contributing to the state of black America. One finding: More than a quarter of white Democrats agree that "if blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites."

If you think agreeing with that statement indicates "latent prejudice," you just might be a far-left academic moonbat.

This is about the tenth story that I've seen in the past couple of days with the same theme, all from the left wing msm.

On one hand they are hoping to play on White liberal guilt in a close race.

They are also doing what obama did in San Francisco when he spoke about bitter people clinging to their guns and religion, trying to explain to his sophisticated fellow travelers the coming loss, blaming it on small minded White bigots.

I suspect this is an Obama plant (one of many that MSN handles for them).

They are playing to the ones who will let a guilty conscience concerning slavery influence their vote. And, there are some like that.

“Oh dear, poor Barry! I favor McCain but I'll vote for that poor young man who overcame so many hardships to counter the redneck vote.”
